Corey Davis announces shock retirement at 28

Current New York Jets and former Tennessee Titans receiver Corey Davis has announced his immediate retirement from the NFL at the age of 28 on Instagram:

Davis had struggled in his two seasons in New York gaining 1,028 yards on 66 catches for 6 touchdowns. He was thought to be battling for a roster spot under the newly revamped receiving corps gathered under the suggestion of new QB Aaron Rodgers. Davis played under a plethora of sub-par QB’s in New York showing just how good a WR he was.

In part, Davis wrote “I have more blessings than I ever could have imagined. I have an amazing family, a beautiful wife and two healthy children that I look forward to spending more time with. I am truly grateful for all the opportunities I have had and will continue to have on my journey.”


Originally drafted by the Titans with the fifth overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, Corey Davis amassed 2,851 yards and 11 touchdowns before singing a 3-year $37.5-million contract with the Jets in 2021.

The New York Jets Chairman Woody Johnson, GM Joe Douglas, and HC Robert Saleh posts messages of gratitude for Davis time with the Jets on Twitter.
